Barcelona

Marc-Andre ter Stegen – 6 – Not needed

The 23-year-old’s evening could not have been easier, with the whole of the match being played at the opposite end of the field. He was needed late on when he saved a Dzeko penalty, though, and didn’t manage to keep a clean sheet, although he shouldn’t be too disappointed with the late goal.

Gerard Pique – 6.5 – Attacking

Despite being a defender, the Spaniard grabbed a goal for his efforts after constantly going up the field to attack and he got his name on the scoresheet before being taken off.

Daniel Alves – 6 – Positive

The 32-year-old had good control when under pressure from the Roma players in defence and had a positive night in the back line once called upon.

Jordi Alba – 6 – Inaccurate

The Spaniard was often caught offside when attacking and his timing was also not great when producing the through balls. In the end it didn’t matter too much, but if his timing was a little more accurate Barcelona could have got a few more goals.

Thomas Vermaelen – 6.5 – Versatile

The Belgian regualrly went up to help up front from attack and was the man to concede the penalty for Barca’s sixth goal in the match. His wide range of skills was useful in the game.

Ivan Rakitic – 6.5 – Helpful

Given the attacking nature of the match, Rakitic did well to be involved in the game. Apart from the front three, it was him who set up chances for the attackers and assisted the goals.

Sergio Busquets – 6.5 – Reader

The defensive midfielder helped set up several chances for his side with his excellent through balls and passes. His vision in the game was very helpful to the rest of the team.

Sergi Roberto – 6.5 – Eager

The 23-year-old was comfortable in his position in the squad but was also keen on going forward to get goals, with some excellent runs from him resulting in chances going just wide, while he also helped keep attacks going with his good control.

Luis Suarez – 7 – Skilful

The Uruguayan did well to get away from his marker during the game and was consistently threatening the Roma goal. He managed to express his talent in front of the net with a sublime volley for Barcelona’s third.

Lionel Messi – 7 – Mesmeric

The Argentine international’s typical skill was showcased throughout the evening, as well as his two goals on the scoresheet, and he was unlucky to not get a hat-trick.

Neymar – 6.5 – Average

The Brazilian international had a disappointing night compared to the rest of his side, being the only one of the front three to not score and failed to take is opportunity when he saw his penalty saved.

Substitutions

Sergi Samper – 6 – Promising

The youngster came on at the interval and looked promising from then on. Despite not being involved much, his delivery of the ball in the box and his possession of the ball showed positive signs for the Spaniard.

Marc Bartra – 6 – Invisible

After coming on midway through the second half, the 24-year-old had little impact on the match. Given the overall context of the 90 minutes it didn’t matter, but on another day he could have been blamed for his lack of involvement.

Adriano – 6.5 – Determined

The 31-year-old got Barca’s sixth after he finished a poor Neymar penalty on the rebound, and was determined to get a goal from the moment he got on the field.
